4-Piece Julep Box Giveaway

*This post contains affiliate links.  I will use the money for something practical like more polish or wine!*

Who doesn’t love a good giveaway?  Ask any of my friends and they will tell you I’m the Queen of winning them!  Well I wanted to pass along my good fortune and give one of my awesome readers a chance to win their own Julep Maven box of polish.  Unless this is your first time, then you know just how much I LOVE WITH ALL MY HEART enjoy polish and experimenting with different kinds of nail art.  Who am I kidding…I really do love polish that much…LOL!


How beautiful are these colors?!?!  Now for the awesome part!  You can enter to win this box or if you’re not already a Julep Maven you can sign up to get your own box free! (+ $2.99/shipping)  How cool is that!  And the great thing about Julep polish is that it is vegan and 5-Free.  This means all Julep polishes are not only made without the 3 common chemicals found in nail polishes (Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde), but also without 2 other very dangerous chemicals (Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor).  And as much as I paint my nails I want to make sure that I’m also not getting harmful chemicals in my body.
